The University community offers a warm welcome to all who are joining us in celebrating the inauguration of Dr. Mary Jane Saunders as the sixth President of Florida Atlantic University. In an effort to meet all of your needs and ensure that this will be an enjoyable experience for everyone, we have created a list of transportation services, hotel accommodations and local attractions.
Below you will find information regarding a shuttle service that will be available on the afternoon of Inauguration Day, as well as a list of nearby hotels where visitors to the Boca Raton campus often stay.
For the convenience of our out-of-town guests, we have also posted a Concierge Services document below. It provides information on car rental services, restaurants, local attractions and entertainment venues.
